Crying out from cover
to rally scattered birds,
he hopes that only feathered ears
catch the meaning of his words.
To bring the covey back together,
his location must be known,
yet he must not show the predator
the place where he has flown.
So his message must be qualified
he must be careful how he sends,
his effectiveness is compromised
by the fear he might offend.
Under the cover of opinion
a message fails to clear
the realm of explanation,
canít reach the heart of those
Godís word declared as total Truth
will reach a listening ear,
when given as the only Way
it will affect the one who hears.
It might bring persecution,
rejection, or some pain
or that seed might fall on fertile soil,
and a soul be born again.
